OUR GOALS ARE GREEN
Great American Companies recognizes that our work may have a direct or indirect effect on the local, regional and global environment. We are committed to reducing any harmful effects on the environment and promoting the understanding of sustainability in its broadest context.
Great American Companies has implemented the use of Green Office Equipment for printing, faxing and copying purposes. These machines have lowered the amount of toner used in each document printed as well as provided us the luxury of using recycled toner cartridges to eliminate waste and plastics going to landfills.
Great American Companies has a goal to reduce paper usage over the next 18 months by 50% by utilizing duplex printing where possible, scanning documents for electronic delivery, and capabilities to retrieve electronic copies without the need to reprint.
Our goal is to further our reduction in paper reliance by scanning in all signed documents post closing for delivery to buyer and seller rather than paper copy. The scanning and storage of signed closing packages will also eliminate any need for paper copy to be sent inter office, and the need for storage of paper copy will also be eliminated by going to an electronic filing system.
We all live in a world with finite resources and it is vital that we act in a sustainable and responsible way. Our goal is to meet the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
